New shoes from Mango

During the month of December I have a general shopping role; I cannot buy anything for myself only Christmas presents. Firstly, with all the presents, you really can't afford any more shopping and secondly it is just silly to buy clothes in December when everything is going to be on sale in January.

Nevertheless, what I have discovered while doing my X-mas shopping is that many stores have already started with some kind of sales. In many display windows you will see signs of 30%, 40% even 50% of discounts. I guess we don't need to underline how badly the economy is going and how desperate the stores are for people to buy more!

I went to Mango Outlet this weekend and what do I find? They have discounts! When buying from the new collection you got a 30% off when buying one article and a 40% off when buying two articles. I did get one Christmas present and then I found these shoes I could not say no to:

Leather ballerinas with nit bows. Was before being sold in the outlet 45€, then reduced to 20€ and with my 40% discount I only paid 12€. Seriously, I don't think I could have done a better bargain in January...

Custo Pop-up Store

Custo Barcelona is currently opening what they are calling "Pop-up" stores around Spain. The concept is to open a space where they sell Custo clothes with up to 70% of discounts during a limited amount of time.
In Barcelona they opened the Pop-up store on the Shopping Night (the 30/11) at Pg. Gracia 26. Unfortunately, the Pop-up store's last day is today.

The concept was really cool; it was placed in a garage and not only could you buy clothes but there was also a corner serving drinks, a DJ playing music and in the background you could enjoy a Custo catwalk.

Here are the information for the Pop-up stores in the rest of Spain:

MADRID – Tiendas en Fuencarral y Gran Vía – Del 1/12 al 11/12
VALENCIA – Tienda en Jorge Juan – Del 1/12 al 11/12
ZARAGOZA – Centro Comercial Puerta Cinegia (Plaza España) – Del 14/12 al 21/12
LLEIDA – Institut d’Estudis Ilerdencs – Del 29/11 al 3/12
PLATJA D’ARO – Avinguda S’Agaró 4 – Del 3/12 al 10/12

My boyfriend who is actually a bigger fan of Custo than I am visited the store early and found him-self some really nice offers. He also had a gift for me; this nice sporty hoodie jacket.

Most awaited store openings in Psg. de Gracia Barcelona

Paseo de Gracia, the most luxury shopping street in Barcelona, is always in movement. More and more interesting stores have opened or are in the process of opening. According to the newspaper Lavanguardia this is what we can look forward to for the near future:

The second Apple store in Barcelona will be opened just next to Plaza Catalunya (more precisely on the corner of Paseo de Gracia and Plaza Catalunya). The size is of 3200 square meters and they will be distributed on two floors. The construction of the building of the former bank Banesto is ongoing and the store will most probably be opened in the second semester of 2012.

Apparently Abercrombie & Fitch will be opening a store of 2500 square meters distributed on several floors. They will install themselves in the building of the headquarters of the insurance company Generali, located at Paseo de Gracia, 11 (Paseo de Gracia crossing Gran Vía). The construction has not yet started as the brand is waiting for the licensing they have applied for at the city council.

Mango has during quite some time advertised that a new store is opening on Paseo de Gracia (next to Tiffany & Co., between the streets Diputació and Consell de Cent). Nevertheless, all though the signs have been on the facade for almost a year, there is no news to when exactely the store will actually open. To be continued....

New Accessorize store in Aarhus

Aarhus has gotten another Accessorize store in the main walking street. The store opened a couple of weeks ago and it is a really nice store. It is bigger than the one in Bruuns Galleri and much more organised.

Accessorize sells a big range of really cute and sweet items. The stores sells small wallets, stickers, underwear, jewellery, key chains, gloves - both for adults, children - and the child in you!

The prices are not the cheapest, however you can find some things among the produckts that are reasonable priced - and during sales you can really get some good bargains (Especially during final sales with up to 70%)

New Primark opening in L'Illa Diagonal

Yesterday a new Primark opened in Barcelona in the shopping centre L'Illa Diagonal.
The shopping center is easy to get to; you can either take the metro on the green line to the station Maria Cristina or take one of the following busses: 6, 7, 30, 33, 34, 63, 66, 67, 78.

The store is located on the -1 (and -2) floor. This Primark is a much bigger than the one in Diagonal Mar with two huge floors. I was there on the opening day and the shop was full with people. Despite the crowd, it was very nice to that they offered me a new shopping basket (without holes!) and for once I could almost find all the sizes that I needed.

On the upper floor you can find clothes for women as well as shoes and accessories.

On the lower floor there is clothes for children and men as well as Home products.

I got mainly Christmas presents as well as some basics for me. As I was there for the opening they gave me this I heart Primark bag for free.

Second Primark in Barcelona (Cornellá)

Apart from the Primark in Diagonal Mar Shopping Centre, there is actually a second Primark in Barcelona. Well, almost - it is located just outside of Barcelona in Cornellá. Last year the new shopping centre Splau was built (just next to the new football stadium for the football team Espanyol) and in there you can find the Primark store.

The easiest way to get there is to take the Ferrocarril de la Generalitat (local train) from Pl. Espanya to the station Cornellá Riera (takes around 15 minutes). From the station you have to walk around 10 minutes to get to the centre. You can also go there with the metro, taking the blue line until the station Cornellá Centre.

This Primark is much bigger than the one in Diagonal Mar with 2.417 square meter divided on two floors. This means that it is much easier to see and find products and of course that there is a much bigger range of products to chose between. To my relief there was also almost no queueing for the dressing rooms or the till.

Apart from various Christmas present I found a couple of things to take home:

Dark blue skinny jeans for 10,99€.

Beige coloured dress on sale for 7€ (was 17€).

Quattria - new online furniture store

A friend of mine has started a new very interesting project, which I wanted to share with you.

Quattria is an online furniture store, selling the products of young up and coming furniture designers. The products are exclusively sold online, cutting out the middle man between the producer and the buyer, which makes it possible to achieve the design furniture at more accessible prices. The products are being sent directly to you (no matter where you live) and easy to sample thanks to the Assembly and operating instructions videos on their website.

So if you are tired of having the same IKEA furniture as any one else, have a look and get inspired!

New boots for fall-winter

All though it is still quite warm here in Barcelona, it will be cold enough to wear fall and winter clothing soon enough.
That is why I decided to invest in these black boots with a wedge heel; comfortable and great to wear with leggings, stockings or skinny jeans.
I got the from Stradivarius for 39,95 euros.
